Drama di antara para pemeran Fast and Furious yang udah pernah Viki kasih tahu sebelumnya, sepertinya masih berlanjut, nih. Semua berawal dari kabar diundurnya perilisan Fast and Furious 9. Hanya selang sehari dari kabar tersebut, Universal Pictures mengumumkan bahwa Fast and Furious 9 yang seharusnya rilis pada 2019, akan digantikan oleh film spin-off karakter Luke Hobbs dan Deckard Shaw. Ternyata, kabar tersebut enggak diterima dengan baik oleh salah satu anggota keluarga Fast and Furious, yaitu Tyrese Gibson. Gibson secara terang-terangan menyalahkan Dwayne Johnson atas penundaan tanggal rilis Fast and Furious 9. Bahkan di salah satu postingan Instagramnya, Gibson ngeklaim kalau dia juga pernah ditawari film spin-off. Namun, tawaran tersebut dia tolak untuk menjaga keutuhan keluarga Fast and Furious.
Diversity, love, multi ethnic worldwide multi generational, United Nations, One Race, Fast Family...... Until Dewayne showed up I guess this whole time he had a problem cause he wasn't the ONLY ONE on the movie poster........... I guess dreams do come true congratulations to @hhgarcia41 and @therock you guys are just amazing you really broke up the #FastFamily I tried to warn you guys... You thought I was hating...... I was simply fighting to keep the family together what makes us great is when you see us all TOGETHER we don't fly solo..... #MyLastPost today.....

Enggak butuh waktu lama buat Johnson untuk menanggapi sindiran dari Gibson. Lewat akun Twitternya, Johnson memberikan pernyataannya.
Bahkan, sang produser dan juga aktor utama Fast and Furious, yaitu Vin Diesel, juga memberikan tanggapannya atas perselisihan ini lewat Instagram. Dalam postingannya, Diesel mengatakan bahwa bergabungnya Johnson di Fast and Furious adalah permintaan penggemar. Selain itu, Diesel enggak mau menyalahkan siapa pun atas diundurnya Fast and Furious 9.
Brotherhood... and all it's complexities. This scene was filmed in Puerto Rico, I can remember it like it was yesterday. Such a beautiful island, the people were so warm and welcoming. I turned 43 that summer... and my son Vincent was born. A woman named Jan Kelly responded to a question I had asked on Facebook, 'who they would like to see me work with?' She said would love to see me work with Dwayne... I listened to her request and he became Hobbs. I know there has been a lot of speculation as to why the Fast 9 release date was pushed... but it would be unfair to say it is anyone's fault. As we plot the course to expand the Fast & Furious universe, one must be mindful to take stock of the roads we took to get here. The pillars of authenticity, family and most importantly, our loyal fan’s perspective has been instrumental in procuring success. However, like any vehicle that has run around the globe 8 times, the franchise is in need of maintenance. My good friend and the godfather of Universal, Ron Meyer has granted me the time to do just that. We have some very exciting news to share soon... stay tuned. Yours truly, Dom #FamilyAlways
